Google Glucose Contact
I think one of the greatest contributions from the so called “tech-bubble” is the creative technology being developed by the tech giants. Here is one amazing thing.
“We hope a tiny, super sensitive glucose sensor embedded in a contact lens could be the first step in showing how to measure glucose through tears, which in the past has only been theoretically possible.”
The chip and sensor would be embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material, while a pinhole in the lens would allow fluid from the surface of the eye to seep into the sensor.
This can save so much efforts of monitoring diabetes. We won’t need any more finger pricking, or difficult devices to monitor blood levels. Rather, we can get this completely connected to our phones and always be aware of whats going on!
